will the economy respond to what is or is not accomplished here in washington? my exclusive guest this morning will have something to say about all of this. house budget chairman and the republican party's 2012 vice presidential nominee paul ryan here for his first live interview since the election. chairman, welcome back to meat meet. >> great to be back with you. >> let's talk about this top priority of the budget battle. it will really mark the beginning of the president's second term. the debt ceiling has been raised, at least temporarily, but there are still big decisions to be made. you specifically said in the last few days that your priority is to make a big down payment on the debt. a debt crisis that you see in this country. >> that's right. >> what do you specifically require? what's the priority? what has the president got to do in your point of view? >> i'll just explain what the speaker said when we passed that bill. our goal is to get cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balancing the budget in a decade. we think the senate ought to offer a budget. they haven't passed a bud
believes that we have to both walk and chew gum at the same time. we have to deal with our own economy and our fiscal situation. that is a given, because that is the source of our strength and our capacity. but we also have to be smart about making the right investments in diplomacy and development to try to solve problems and prevent them. >> i'm joined tonight with senator chris murphy of connecticut, who is a member of the senate foreign relations committee. senator, good to have you with us tonight. moving forward, security obviously is an issue. so getting funding and help from republicans shouldn't be hard after this hearing. that's what i see today. your thoughts on it. >> well, listen, the republicans have had chance after chance to do the right thing here. the irony is just as thick as the walls of the united states congress, when you think that they stripped $300 million out of the secretary's security requests before benghazi. but it gets even worse, ed. after benghazi, the president and the secretary of state said listen, we've got to do better. so they put before congress
. it is a prediction and i don't think either side has anything to gain. remember the virginia economy, a lot of places very dependent on defense and other industries, neither side will look good if they cannot make an agreement. it is a prediction but one that i don't necessarily think will be true. >> david cuts would have a serious drag on the economy estimates from a half a percent to a full point of gdp. someone is going to get the blame for that if it happens. who do you think blinks first? >> that is a good point. you may recall the pentagon was very concerned about this saying they would have to cut about $100 billion right off the bat. some of the officials went to the white house and said let's make a deal on this. there will be a lot of pressure to do that. republicans agreed to raise the debt ceiling. that took away a little bit of their leverage going into negotiations at the end of february. here comes paul ryan. where has he been? he is making this line in the sand now. i think the white house is concerned because this could hurt the economy going forward if we go through these deep cuts
. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix the economy. create jobs. then there's stop spending. and then of course probably the most important that he will talk about tomorrow, compromise, work together. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. >>> let me bring in the rest of our roundtable here. joe scarborough is here from msnbc's "morning joe." adviser to obama 2012, david axelrod. chief foreign correspondent richard engel is here, safe and sound in studio. richard, it's great to see you in person this morning. "new york times" best-selling author of "team of rivals" doris kearns goodwin. in between awards shows she's joined us. and nbc news special correspondent tom brokaw. welcome to all of you. tom, that's where we tee it up. the president, as he begins a second term, very difficult climate in washington and very real expectations. >> yes. and i was looking at those top three priorities for the american people. and they all fit into his single most difficult task, it seems to me, both conceptually and specifically. in the next couple of years, he only has a couple of years, th
of characteristics that will help build the american economy and strengthen american families. third, we create an effective employment verification system that will prevent identity theft and end the future hires of unauthorized workers and lastly establish an improved process for admitting future workers to serve our workforce needs while simultaneously protecting all workers. other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act. but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes l
we're paying for it, the taxpayers. what they did to the economy put it into the tank and it was big stimulus package that had to pull us out of the tank. we're still doing that right now. i wish the doj would go after these folks and give some answer. i think that frontline documentary is outstanding. mike papantonio, good to have you with us tonight. thank you so much. that is "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. the rachel maddow show starts right now. >> thank you for joining us. happy friday. the detroit lions used to play in this building, the pontiac silverdome in once prosperous pontiac, michigan. after the lions left the silverdome and the pontiac factory moved and the town of pontiac went broke, they're tried to sell the stadium to the highest bidder. >> the field has seen monster truck rallies, soccer games. if it can happen on a field, kit happen here. >> out here at the silverdome, we have anything ranging from your dirt shows, snocross shows, home and garden show, trade shows, converts all the way down to anything you would like to do on top of a field football
. that is a disaster. you can't push that aside. real median family income is going down. so the economy has got to be at the very, very top. second of all in my view, when scientists tell us that if we don't get a handle on global warming, the planet may warm by eight degrees by the end of the century with devastating consequences, of course we have to move away from fossil fuel in a dramatic way. transform our energy system. by the way, we can create jobs doing that. right now our republican friends, when you talk about want to do entilement reform, it's not entitlement reform. let's be clear. it's massive cuts in social security, medicare, veterans programs, medicaid. >> you know their argument is that you can't just raise taxes. you have to, at some point, you have to get your fiscal house in order and that means cuts to some of these entitlement programs. >> no it does not. when you talk about getting your fiscal house in order, that's correct, but our republican friends forget to mention that at 15.8%, revenue compared to gdp, that is the lowest percentage in 60 years. when clinton gave us
term with a global economy no longer in free fall. the current unemployment rate back to where it was when he first took office, 7.8%. the dow jones industrial average, now up more than 5,000 points compared to where it was in 2009. but also up, way up, the national debt. ballooning from $10 trillion during the first inauguration to more than $16 trillion yesterday. yesterday david axelrod said growing the economy is a priority for this administration. >> there is a larger priority, how do you create an economy, rebuild an economy in which the american dream, the american compact is fresh where people who work hard feel like they can get ahead. and that's not just about dealing with the fiscal crisis. it's about education. it's about research and development. it's about controlling our energy future. all of these are part of the equation. >> president obama has outlined debt reduction as a top priority heading into the second term. also high on his list, immigration reform. putting more emphasis on developing renewable energy and the most urgent for the president, gun control.
the country's economy as unstable as possible. the house averted the debt ceiling fight. at least some republicans. 33 members of the house gop still broke rank. by averting, we, of course, mean punting the ticking time bomb three months down the road. >> another 90 days away so we can continue to royle this congress, this country, our people, and our economy. >> we should not even be having a debate. it should be no doubt that the full faith and credit of the united states will be honored, and that is what our constitution says. >> the gimmick nature of this whole thing i won't elaborate on, has been done before. >> either way, the passage of this bill has allowed lawmakers to skip from brinkmanship to probably more brinkmanship. looming just over the horizon is a budget battle that could shut down the government and automatic steep spending cuts that could cost thousands of jobs. welcome to the new normal in washington. joining us now from davos, switzerland, is cnbc's squawk box co-host "new york times" columnist and author of too big to fail, andrew ross sorkin. it is great to see
far out ahead of slashing the budget during a weak economy. the other thing, of course, is financial reform. did and he the president put in place some things along with congress that boo prevent another financial disaster? >> we'll be looking forward to your interview with paul ryan, his first interview since the election. >> first interview since the election. we'll have a lot to talk about in terms of the future of the party. >> thank you very much. >> and now to discuss the future of the republican party, haley barbour, former chair of the republican governors association joins us now from capitol hill. thank you very much. good to see you. let's talk about bobby jindahl's instructions to the republicans at the winter meeting. we can't be the stupid party. do you think that your fellow republicans have figured out a way forward where they won't be the quoting bobby jindahl "the stupid party?" >> i think he is talking about during the campaign we had a couple of candidates for senator who made stupid remarks that not only hurt them in their own races, but spilled over and hurt oth
'll tell what you, if the economy keeps getting better over the next three years, you've got hillary linton rclin running three years from now, we republicans have such a major headwind in our face for the next three years. it's going to be tough. >> yeah, there's no question. but there's so many variables. >> go ahead. >> no, so many variables that could happen in the next 3 1/2 years. >> yeah. ed sees you making a motion, he stops. >> i was trying to get richard haass in on this. >> she wants some more 'roids. >> andrea, i'm sorry, we cut you off. >> no, there are other points about the politics of it. joe biden is going to be at the white house, in closed meetings with the president today and has had a very high-profile role. clearly, this is the interview that he would have wanted to see. and when you talk to a lot of leading democrats who were in town this weekend, they were saying that joe biden has everything going for him except that hillary clinton is a woman and is a celebrity and has the best popularity. and she has the virtue, after eight years then of barack obama and the obama
and gloom vision of the obama economy just doesn't seem to match reality these days. i'll have the details coming up. >>> and while whistle-blowers come forward to describe the fraud that led to the financial collapse, the department of justice isn't going after wall street's ceos. i'll ask mike papantonio why they're just being let off the hook. you can listen to my radio show on sirius xm radio noon to 3:00 a.m. share your thoughts with us on #edshow. we're copping right back. hey, buddy? oh, hey, flo. you want to see something cool? snapshot, from progressive. my insurance company told me not to talk to people like you. you always do what they tell you? no... try it, and see what your good driving can save you. you don't even have to switch. unless you're scared. i'm not scared, it's... you know we can still see you. no, you can't. pretty sure we can... try snapshot today -- no pressure. >>> welcome back to "the ed show". thanks for stay with us tonight. liberals are furious about filibuster reform. here is some reaction from my radio show. >> what harry reid has done is just outrageous
for that economy that we've been working for, to vote for immigration reform, to vote for common sense gun reforms. you know, i think that we can affect elections but we legally can't be involved in them. >> some critics have raised red flags as the group's designation over a 501 c-4. with me is michael isikoff. the designation of a 501 c-4, what is the benefit to do that? >> this is the new route that advocacy groups use, can accept unlimited corporate donations and not disclose where they come from and use them for all sorts of political ads. now, they've followed -- the obama people have now followed the karl rove model and they're openly pitching corporate donations. the opening pitch was sponsored by a group called business forward. a lot of big companies, dow chemical, duke energy -- >> a lot of tech companies. >> comcast are part owner, nbc was part of it. they say they're going to disclose and that is a step ahead of where karl rove is but what kind of disclosure is the question. when i pressed katie hogan, the spokeswoman for the group, she said that's all being worked out. will we get re
soon. because that could put us back in a recession. it would pull too much demand out of the economy. for the long-term when people say correctly, we have a serious, long-term fiscal problem, the cause of the problem is that if we don't do anything the debt will rise faster than the economy grows. and ultimately we'll have to pay so much in interest payments, we're in big trouble. but what we need to do to prevent that is to keep the debt stable. to keep it from rising faster than the economy grows. and to do that you need deficits below about 3 or maybe 2 and a half percent of the gross domestic product each year. you don't need the deficits at zero. you don't need the balance. and in fact, the difference between a small deficit to 2, 2 and a half percent of gdp, if the difference was if you shorted funding for education and highways and roads and bridges and basic scientific research, you would probably have a smaller economy in the long run, not a bigger one. because you would have starved the very kind of investments you need to fuel long-term productivity increases and growth in

. you have delivered less and less from our economy, particularly for hispanics and african-americans. >> dana, the stock market is at a five-time high -- a five-year high. unemployment is at a five-year low. he says on the one hand he wants to reach out. you can see the shares in the dow jones right now. what is this man talking about? please, translate it because i'm not intelligent enough to understand it. >> there is apparently a bit of a mixed message occurring at the rnc winter meeting. >> in the very brain of the chairman. >> i think bobby jindal had a point where he said we need to stop being the party of austerity. we need to stop saying how good we can be at shrinking and cutting government. that is not a winning message. he's absolutely right about that. and then you have the party here in washington doing exactly what he said not to do, and you have paul ryan coming forward and saying, yes, i'm going to -- we lost the election so i'm actually going to double down on this. i'm going to cut 40% of the federal government out over the next ten years because that's ex
hostilely when he actually need them here contributing to our economy. so i'm confident that with this sort of renewed effort on both sides of the aisle to work out something that is doable, that will have the proper enforcement mechanisms but the proper pathway for people to come in out of the shadows and be fully participating members of our society, i'm very confident that we can get there. i really for the first time in the ten years that i have served in congress, really see this as a very real possibility. >> yeah. my concern is i agree with everything you said in terms of economics and social issues, fine. my concern is a government that cannot enforce its laws begins to crumble and our failure to have an honest, open, progressive immigration policy has been a disaster and it's not good for the future of our government that it can't do the job of enforcing its own borders which is essential to any country on this planet. stephanie, last thought. are we going to do this this time? >> well, chris, we have to try. i think there's a reason why we're talking about immigration reform, beca
% of the entire budget of government at a time that the world is getting smaller, that our economy depends on its relationship with every other country in the world, that we face a more global market than any time in our history, so not just in my briefings a s at the state department, but in my conversations with business leaders, in my trips to crisis areas, to war zones, to refugee camps, and in some of the poorest countries on earth, i have been reminded of the importance of the work our state department does to protect and advance america's interests and do the job of diplomacy in a dangerous world and particularly, i think, there is more that can be done to advance our economic capacity and interests. in this debate and in every endeavor, i pledge to work very closely with this committee, mr. chairman, mr. ranking member, not just because it would be my responsibility but because i will not be able to do this job effectively, nor will our country get what it needs to out of these initiatives without your involvement and your ideas going forward. so thank you, mr. chairman and members of the
economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act, not only to create new jobs but to lay a new foundation for growth. we'll build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. we'll restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's use and lower its cost. >> here we are four years later. why not come back to the dubliner? all you did too. my, lord. the line goes around the block. a wonderful, joyful crowd. thank you all for coming. joining us now with the politico playbook, the politico executive director, jim. >> i'm always a dose of sunshine in the morning. you guys were talking about ted cruz and his comments on gun control. i think what people need to realize, ted cruz is a mainstream republican with this senate and this house. his views, he's not on the conservative edge of the party. that is the party. when you think about the budget, think about gun control -- >> saying the president exploited the death of 6 and 7-year-olds within minutes? >> i think a lot of republicans
night. alex. >> okay. thank you so much for that. >>> let's go to the economy, more signs it's on the upswing. u.s. stock markets approaching record highs, the dow on track for its best january performance since 1989. the s & p closing above 1,500 for the first time in five years. nasdaq also closing higher. but there could be pitfalls to the good news. >> the stock market winning streak marked its fourth straight week and this week, encouraging signs on jobs and higher home prices, the government reported homes of new sales shot up in 2012. home sales up almost 14%. diana covers real estate for cnbc. >> home building definitely improved in 2012. nowhere near we need it to be. running at half the housing starts we would be in a normal year. only . >> any improvement is good news for this custom home building outside of columbus, ohio. they haven't been this busy since the housing bubble burst in 2006. >> we're very excited. last year was good, expecting this year to be great. >> reporter: the dow has finished each yoear higher than it began. it is poised to set a new record h
chase and the financial cases that almost swallowed hole the nation's economy. if she is confirmed, her new job would be to oversee some of those former clients of hers to make sure they follow the rules. she is an interesting choice, right? a highly qualified but interesting choice. if you are the kind of wall street guy who can't believe you didn't go to prison for what happened in '08? who can't believe what you guys got away with when you crashed the national economy by knowingly breaking all the rules? if you're that guy on wall street tonight and you're still behaving that way when you go to work every day, are you happy to hear that this wall street white collar defense attorney is going to be the new top cop on wall street? are you happy about that? she defended the bank of america ceo. or are you scared because the cop who put away john gotti and the blind sheik might be coming for you on wall street next? which is it? are you bummed or are you psyched? the one and only eliot spitzer joins us next.

of government should not be used to regulate the economy or bring about social change but we do that all the time and the president was defending government. >> tara, a lot of people have been pointing out lately this a majority of the country supports things like same-sex marriage, higher taxes on the rich, want to preserve medicare at all costs, but i want to show you a gallup poll from the past summer. found that 46% of americans say that they are actually conservative on economic issues. 32% say they are moderate and just 20% say they are liberal on economic issues. when it comes to social issues, 38% say they are conservative and 31% moderate and 28% liberal and these are the numbers. has america really become as liberal as some democrats would like to believe, and is this evidence to the contrary? >> i think have you to look closer at the issues. when people put themselves into a category as progressive or conservative or liberal, you miss out on figuring out that actually people don't fall into categories. some people who are for marriage equality might consider themselves to be c
having about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling. the american economy somebody very important to the global economy. we cannot have the kind of nonsense we've had going on in the building behind me and think that that's going to be either good foreign policy or economic policy for around the globe, not just here at home. i think he was trying to remind people we do live in a global economy. it is interconnected and that that does impact our foreign policy and our defenses. >> it clearly does. michael, the outgoing secretary of state said, and i'm quoting her, we are facing a spreading hi hjihadist threat across nort africa. is it your view that the attack on the consulate in libya, the hostage taking at that gas plant in algeria, and the conflict in mali mean that north africa is now the main front for islamic terrorism and how does a new secretary of state confront this? >> great question. i don't know that i would say it's the main front, but it is certainly a serious front and a serious set of interlocked issues. one thing we have to debate on libya, because i've been perp
something to his stewardship. >> with hindsight being 20/20 and the economy they walked in to and kept falling down the hill -- >> right. >> -- even once they get in to office and often there's instability after a new president but major instability -- >> the free fall. >> correct. they had a long way to go to hit the bottom before they could build it back up. >> i'm not sure they knew when they went in to the office. included geithner and summers and roamer. i think they were -- >> didn't do a full house inspection. like bought it sight unseen. >> and then there's mold. >> the pipes are leaking. >> bad news. a lot of maintenance to be done and interesting, geithner's taken probably more heat from the left than from the right. meaning, the administration's as a whole we know is not a favorite of the republican party and the right. but geithner has been a real bugaboo from the left of a perception of a creature of an industry survived and tloohrive and the rest stagnated. i take the view that the economic system, the financial system has a lot of faults and utility and if the lights go
for not separating people and understanding the things they contribute to the american economy and society. if the republicans hold up the legislation, is it enough for the republicans that they have spokes people like marco rubio out there? does that build enough of a tent for hispanics to come in? >> not if they have a bill. latinos are clear on this. no bill, no support. rubio talked about it being a piecemeal. it has to be aim comprehensive large package, but i think they're going to get there, and the main reason is not just the election returns and 71% that obama got of latino voters. it's that business is for this. even in the republican districts that don't care about the votes that obama got. they do care about what their local business leaders think, and they want a bill. i think actually this is going to be quite a bit easier than a lot of people think. >> business is -- >> i never thought i would call jonathan naive. >> i know, but what's happened -- >> what's the difference now? >> because -- >> he didn't listen for half a decade. >> here's the difference. >> nativism, going b
of the progressive tradition. which is a safety net, having government invest in the economy, build fracture of the highway system like eisenhower did. i think they're more liberal and mainstream than they've been because the right has moved so far to the right they don't want to see government doing anything. and that's not -- i don't think that's what the -- >> and this is a nonpartisan assessment. the democratic party is where they've always been. in some cases moderate than others. the republican party, however, has moved from a center right party i believe towards the rightist party much more so. >> over the last few years. it's also true this speech represented a shift for obama. just a few months ago he was in ohio competing with mitt romney who could love coal more. he wasn't talking about gun control during the campaign. now he's talking about gun control. he's started spinning forward. >> he never played the luddite role. romney talked about switching positions. went from a guy saying of course there's global warming problems to i don't believe it. right? that was a battle on the c

children here, have grandchildren here and have contributed to this society and to this economy for many, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there
their agenda today as well. cutting spending. >> our nation's total debt is now larger than our entire economy. this means that every man, woman and child owes a $53,000 share of this debt. that level of spending is unsustainable. a major credit rating agency has already downgraded our nation's credit once. and if we don't start making some real progress on spending reforms, more downgrades are likely in the near future. >> about eight minutes past the hour now. live look this is happening in washington, d.c. as we speak. this is happening really across the country. one of the main ones, this is a rally for gun control taking place in washington, d.c. people there are rallying for stricter gun laws. you know this has been the big debate in the country since the shooting, the killing of all those children in newtown, connecticut at their elementary school. you're seeiie seeing eleanor ho. expecting residents of newtown, connecticut to play a role in this march today. we don't have a wider shot of how many people turned out. march happening going to keep an eye on it there in washington, d.c. >>
principles and good government principles, reform government, modern government. their economies are growing at twice the rate of the national government. so that's why i'm optimistic. it's not -- there are principles at work. there are economics that work. it doesn't work. so my long-term view is that the states will soon be bailing out the feds. >> we shall see. leigh, you're writing a book right now talking about the demographic changes that are basically putting an end to the suburbs as we know it. these same demographic changes present a tremendous challenge for the republican party on one side. but on the other side presents a tremendous challenge to the party of big government. we are going to spend the next 30 years, at some point -- now, this president is ignoring the reality. his inaugural speech could not have been any more disconnected from the reality that we now face economically. but at some point those demographics could actually help small-government conservatives because we're going to have to figure out how to scale back in a smart way. >> it's true. and the demographics a
economy standards in history. my view is the president has a massive political opportunity because of climate change impacts. people are now feeling them in their lives, in their neighborhoods and in their lively hoods. it's affecting our economy already. major insurance studies show this. when i was working for president clinton, we had to talk about climate change in future tense. now president obama can talk about it in presence tenst tens. that's huge. >> him talking about the storms and fires, because to me the only hope we have, and it's a bizarre grim hope, is that actually the effects of climate change are happening faster than people anticipated. and they are happening now and we are seeing them and it's a tangible thing we can confront as opposed to our grandchildren who nobody really cares -- >> we need to bring the country together over this issue. why the issue has become partisan, it's very complicated. part of it is -- >> it's not that complicated. >> actually, it is complicated. what happened is the administration came up with a cap and trade proposal before the gre
of our economy. when you've got republicans senators who are willing to support this, it's time for house republicans to support it as well. >> fair and balanced. so has the immigration 8 done the work of the president? there's no need for that big policy speech tomorrow. >> i think we need both. remember, we need, you know, the support of the white house as well as the work in congress are going to be critical to making sure that the end result is legislation that remains fair and balanced. because as we know in the legislative process, all sorts of things can get changed and amendments and what have you. so i do think it's important that the president -- remember as the president talked about last year, it's important that outside groups engage in this process. it's also important to remember that, i think for the president to stay engaged, because he has done so much already on enforcement. so much money has already been spent on enforcement. so while, you know, that's the good part of the talking points, i think, for republicans and it may also be good policy, i think as victoria poin
that nearly brought the economy to its knees. today, there are rules to help families. responsible families. buy a home. or send their child to college without worrying about being tricked out of their life savings. there are rules to make sure that financial firms doing the right things aren't undermined by those that don't do the right things and there are rules to end taxpayer funded bailouts once and for all. we also need cops on the beat to enforce the law. and that's why today i am nominating maryjo white to lead the securities and exchange commission and richard corduray to lead the financial protection bureau. this guy's bothering me. as a young girl, maryjo white was a big fan of the hardy boys. i was, too, by the way. >> good, good. >> as an adult, she's built a career they could only dream of. as a u.s. attorney in new york, she helped prosecute criminals and money launders. in the early 1990s, she brought down john gotti. and she brought to justice the terrorists responsible for bombing the world trade center and the american embassies in africa. so, i'd say that's a good run. y
investing in a greener future for the environment and the economy. president obama may have shown signs he is ready to do that in the second inaugural address. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. the path toward sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the power of jobs and technologies. we must claim its promise. >> strong, clear words from a president considered not green enough by environment lists in his first term. it's true, the president has a lot of work to do but instead of chastising him, maybe it's time for the green movement itself to reimagine what it ought to look like. the modern green movement must be an inclusive one and close the green gab that exists between national and environmental organizations and justice organizations. the environmental problems in inner cities and rural areas ok pied by low income communities of color deserve as much attention as the fracki
